There are many attacks against the Christian faith and our duty to spread the good news to everyone. Most attacks are fundamental, which is to say that they try to breakdown our very belief in the existence of God, through the spread of atheism, which seems to be getting more drastic. When they can’t get us to denounce our beliefs, they attack His nature and qualities, as though by labeling Him as bad, we will suddenly wake up from our trance!
If they meet a road block there, the next attack is usually against the Bible, being our primary reference point for our beliefs and the teaching of Heaven and Hell. The main defense is that we have no right to judge others and that right and wrong is relative to culture. Also, they seek to disprove the Biblical stories with ‘scientific evidence’, even though the sphere of science is yet to be fully comprehended by the human mind! They arrogantly ignore the many scientists who have eventually had to conclude that ‘there must be a God’.
Other attacks have come under the ‘tolerance’ agenda, where the result is the exaltation of self and sexual freedom. However ‘religious extremism’ is not tolerated, and the definition of extreme is getting broader and broader, so that religion itself seems to stand as the opposite of tolerance!
That leads us to the final attack – the prohibition of religion. Though it is not illegal yet, that’s where it’s all leading to. Religion is no longer appreciated in Western schools, and teaching children about God is seen as an exploitation of their vulnerability, because it is assumed that they are unable to decide for themselves what is true, and will succumb based on their relationship with the teacher, rather than a thorough analysis of the truth. The end result of such reasoning is to eventually accuse parents who teach their children to love and fear God of child abuse!
In the meantime, there are no restrictions on the filth that children are taught in schools concerning their gender and self-image, sexuality and relationships, evolutionary based science and the idea that their purpose in life is to be rich and famous! So the anti-God agenda gets free reign in schools and public spaces, under the tolerance agenda, while people of faith are openly persecuted and abused, but made to think they have the same rights to their beliefs, its expression, association and life as others.
The good news is that we don’t need the world’s approval to teach our children (and ANY child that we come across) about God and the Salvation He prepared through Jesus Christ! Jesus has clearly commanded us to go into all the world making disciples of everyone. And in case we wonder about the age of consent, He emphasized, for our benefit – maybe for such a time as this – that we should not hinder the little children from coming to Him!
“Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
